Providing an introduction to stochastic optimal control in in?nite dimension, this book gives a complete account of the theory of second-order HJB equations in in?nite-dimensional Hilbert spaces, focusing on its applicability to associated stochastic optimal control problems. It features a general introduction to optimal stochastic control, including basic results (e.g. the dynamic programming principle) with proofs, and provides examples of applications. A complete and up-to-date exposition of the existing theory of viscosity solutions and regular solutions of second-order HJB equations in Hilbert spaces is given, together with an extensive survey of other methods, with a full bibliography. In particular, Chapter 6, written by M. Fuhrman and G. Tessitore, surveys the theory of regular solutions of HJB equations arising in in?nite-dimensional stochastic control, via BSDEs. The book is of interest to both pure and applied researchers working in the control theory of stochastic PDEs, and in PDEs in in?nite dimension. Readers from other ?elds who want to learn the basic theory will also ?nd it useful. The prerequisites are: standard functional analysis, the theory of semigroups of operators and its use in the study of PDEs, some knowledge of the dynamic programming approach to stochastic optimal control problems in ?nite dimension, and the basics of stochastic analysis and stochastic equations in in?nite-dimensional spaces.

"This book addresses a comprehensive study of the theory of stochastic optimal control when the underlying dynamic evolves as a stochastic differential equation in infinite dimension. It contains the most general models appearing in the literature and at the same time provides interesting applications. The book is well written and is mainly addressed to graduate students of engineering and of pure and applied mathematics." (Hector Jasso, zbMATH 1379.93001, 2018)
